Saif pokes fun at Aishwarya

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been a regular face at the prestigious Cannes film festival while celebrities like Saif Ali Khan, Sonam Kapoor walked the red carpet of Cannes for the first time. Promoting his film, ‘Aarakshan’ at Cannes, Saif said that making an appearances at Cannes is a honor but representing individually is fruitless. Taking a dig at the Bachchan bahurani Ash, the chotte nawab said that Ash has been a common face of Cannes because she is a pretty face.

Now referring any actors for his or her beauty and not for his talents is something that no one would like. This statement of Saif is enough to rage Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Saif feels it is important to showcase Indian cinema there.

“I feel that, generally speaking, we make different kinds of films, there are commercial movies and there are also a lot of filmmakers who make arty movies and they should be competing here,” Saif quoted as saying.

He thinks Cannes is a global platform to exchange and share ideas.

“In my opinion, the ideal reason for going to Cannes would be to showcase a movie, but you can rent space also. The best way to be here is to have a film competing in the festival. According to me these international film festivals are about different members and stars from various countries getting together,” Saif said.
